Sharpening your hand tools

Sharpening your hand tools

About the Course

This workshop reveals the art of sharpening your hand tools, focussing on spoon carving tools including knives, crook knives and carving axes.
You will learn to sharpen tools that we provide, or you can bring along your own tools that need sharpening.
Stephen, your tutor, has been carving for over 30 years and has a wealth of experience and knowledge in this field. You will be supported throughout and he will be on hand with advice on the best kind of tools to buy. There will also be the opportunity to buy some on the night.
Note: In the event that the minimum number of four participants is not reached, the workshop will be postponed with 48 hours' notice.

If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

All materials and tools necessary for learning the art of sharpening hand tools will be provided. And tea and biscuits too!
Bring your own tools if you have them.
